Yeah I heard about that 2! I also heard that if there's only 1 son born in the family & the rest r girls that they won't be forced into the army so I'm guessing the some of our boys r safe! But as for why it's mandatory I don't have a clue! But that seriously sucks!

Yea I read up on the law of South Korea before, and I'm pretty sure its mandatory for ALL males to join the military for at least a 2 year term. I'll look up more about it but I've never heard of that 1 son thing before and I'm not sure that applies. I know that if you have double citizenship, then you can be excused from joining the military. I'm not sure if you have to be in that country or what the details are about it but I remember reading that somewhere. As of right now, I think ALL the boys are going to have to go. There are many countries, as well, that have the mandatory military service.

Everyone, go to that site and look under military. It gives you all the rules

Unfortunately, I believe, it is true, they were just waiting for Changmin to be of age, now he is, so they all would go into military together

Conscription : 24-28 months depending on the branch

What will happen during those months, and after that, nobody knows, we all just have to wait and see.
But the boys will be missed, and still be loved the same way, so don't worry guys ^^

But it can be soon or maybe way later because look at the age required.
Military age : Mandatory 20 to 30 years of age for male, wartime conscription 18-49 years of age

They still got many years ahead of them ^_^

yea its sad! but I know they have to do what they have to do. It may not be for a long time which is good. At least they are still young and doing as well as they are. That means maybe they won't have to go until a REALLY REALLY long time from now
